Senior Associate Attorney

Company: The Edwards Law Group
Location: Smyrna
Posted on: May 8, 2022

Job Description:

Join our growing boutique law firm in Atlanta with three attorneys, seven committed and dedicated support staff, and more on the way!

We are a family law firm. It's all we do...and we do it well.--We take on the ugly in Family Law cases so our clients don't have to.

This job requires imaginative, creative, and analytical thinking, with a strong motivation for finding solutions to aligning the law with complex family scenarios. The approach to work is systematic and patient, characterized by introspection and the development of new ideas. Sufficient opportunity to express and act on these new ideas is very important. Your communication style will be factual and authoritative when discussing matters in your area of expertise, and you may be quiet and reserved with those outside your inner work circle. Most of your work will be done on your own, but you will interface with others on a project basis. The job requires a deliberate, unhurried pace, providing plenty of time for serious introspection to be sure you get it right. Most of your decisions will be made alone because you're an expert and you don't require consistent input. If the job requires delegation, you will follow up closely to assure the accuracy of the work.

You know you will appreciate these things about the role:

--- Working at a deliberate pace and having ample time to delve deep into your work
--- Being about to use your strong analytical and problem-solving skills that are based on serious introspection, and being deeply involved with the facts
--- Able to make decisions independently relying on your own knowledge and technical abilities without needing to involve others when problem-solving
--- Being open and friendly amongst coworkers without needing to be a social butterfly
--- You will be somewhat assertive, confident, and direct when speaking about your area of specialization because after all, you are an expert
--- And for the most part, you will only delegate minor details, checking for accuracy along the way
